Chapter 14. Database Techniques > Creating a Database

Creating a Database

There are two ways to create a database in a worksheet. First, as explained in Chapter 12, you can use the List Manager. Second, you can create a database manually by entering the data in contiguous rows and columns, as explained below.

Note that any area of a worksheet can be considered a database as long as every data column has a label (which is treated as the field name) and the rows and columns are contiguous. A single blank row or column—even in the middle of an extensive data set—marks the edge of the database. Records beneath a blank row or fields to the right of a blank column are not considered part of the database.
